If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with ALS, you may be struggling to understand what this means and what to do next.

Life with ALS presents many challenges for those living with the disease and their caregivers, as well as family and friends. In addition to needing physical support, people living with ALS may find it difficult to cope with the associated emotional and lifestyle changes.

ALS Canada strives to provide the education and tools to help make day-to-day life with ALS less overwhelming and more manageable. We offer resources for people living with ALS, youth whose lives may be affected by the disease and physicians caring for patients who have ALS. We also have a number of fact sheets that provide information on a variety of topics related to ALS.
